Tips To Fight Sagging Skin

As we age, we begin to notice parts of our skin that starts to droop a little. The more we grow old, the more it starts to sag.

Unfortunately, as gravity anchors us to Earth, it does to same to our skin.

With the medical advances in skincare, a solution to sagging skin can be achieved. The trick is to start early with prevention and don’t stop. EVER. But where do you begin?

– Your moisturizer. You need to find the right one for your skin type. If the crème is too heavy, it will clog pores. Get a skin analysis to determine which exact product to get for you.

– Active Treatments. Add a vitamin C serum or vitamin A (retinol), alpha or beta hydroxy acids (AHA or BHA) to your skincare routine. These products are usually applied at night and help your skin renew itself faster and to look firmer while you sleep.

– Corrective Facials. There is a reason why we always tell you to get a facial regularly. They work! You’ll look younger and your skin will look a lot healthier too.

– Intensive Treatments. Go for body wraps, dermabrasion peels and more to smooth out sagging skin, large pores and brown spots.

Follow these tips and you’ll feel confident and look beautiful every day of your life!

3 Simple Steps To Radiant Skin

It doesn’t take an enormous amount of time to have glowing skin. Here are a few easy steps you can take to help you achieve that.

Use The Right Skin Care Products. There are many different types of skin and knowing one from the other and what your skin type is, is the first step you need to take. By doing so, you’ll know exactly what products will work best with your skin. Choosing the wrong products for your skincare might even cause more damage. This is why a skin consult is so valuable.

Exfoliate And Mask. These are both terrific anti-aging steps! Exfoliation removes dirt and grime off your skin to keep you looking fresh and radiant. You can easily exfoliate in the shower and add masking once on the weekend. Done!

Wear sunscreen all year. Sunscreen is a MUST. To reduce existing sun damage and prevent further more against your skin, you have to wear sunscreen. Choose a high SPF, even if you aren’t going to be outdoors a lot or the day is overcast. There are moisturizers that already have a high quality SPF. We can help you choose one that’s perfect for your skin.

It really doesn’t take a lot of effort to get your skin glowing; it just takes good habits repeated again and again. If you stray, there’s no need to stress about it. Just get back on the right path tomorrow.

How To Keep Ahead Of The Winter Blues
(Yes, Cold Weather Is Coming!)

As autumn gradually makes its way into the colder days of winter, we pull on thicker socks and grab our favourite boots. Love it or hate it, winter is on its way!

So what can you do to prepare for the chilly days ahead? Put self-care at the top of your list!

1. Increase your vitamin D. Sunlight levels are less in the winter, but get as much of it as you can and increase your vitamin D. It helps to increase energy levels.

2. Change up your skincare products. Skin needs richer, more nourishing products to protect it from colder temperatures. We can help you there.

3. Buy fresh flowers! The vibrant colours of a Spring bouquet add freshness and cheer to any room.

4. Review your make-up colours. What about a new look? We’ll match winter shades with easy, make-up techniques that are perfect for you.

5. Wear bright colours. It’s hard to feel down with vibrant splashes of colour. And it’s fun!

6. Keep getting pedicures. Regular pedicures boost your immunity and make you feel happier.

7. Exercise. Yes, indeed. Get that blood and serotonin pumping! It’s a sure cure for the winter blues.

8. Get a manicure. A splash of bright polish on hardworking hands is an instant pick-me-up. Manicures also give your hands a moisture boost while relaxing you at the same time.

9. Watch your cravings. When serotonin levels are low, your body craves carbohydrates, especially high sugar foods like junk food and soda. Go for protein instead.

10. Get a spray tan. Keep that sun kissed look all through winter. It will keep you smiling all season long!

Sail through the upcoming cold season. Take care of yourself and let us be your partner in keeping you healthy and happy!

Don’t Look Now But 35 Could Be the New 50!

Don’t Look Now But 35 Could Be the New 50!

Don’t Look Now But 35 Could Be the New 50!

Did your eyes do a double take? Ours sure did! And yes, it is a whole lot scary. Here’s the scoop. New evidence shows that the younger generation is aging more quickly than previous generations.

Bizarre, isn’t it? But wait until you find out why.

An April 2013 paper from the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology made this stunning discovery. Metabolic health, or, how well your body uses insulin to process sugar in the blood, is not working as well as in previous generations.

The reason? Our high intake of empty carbs and fast foods, which causes high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and even type-2 diabetes. But it also ages you by 15 years!

In fact, today’s 45 year-olds are on par with the aging process of 60 year olds! Twenty and 30 year old age ranges are also aging at the same 15-year rate.

As scary as it is, there is good news. You don’t have to be a victim of Metabolic Syndrome. You can take control of your health.

• Get regular physical exercise-Walk regularly or go to the gym

• Eat smart-Skip the junk food and empty carbs

• Skip the soda-There is absolutely nothing good about a soda

• Relax and renew-Get regular facials or a massage

If this study reinforces anything at all, it’s this: Take care of yourself! No if’s, and’s, or but’s.

From diet and exercise to regular rejuvenation, self-care keeps your body and your mind aging backwards, instead of forward.

And that’s our mission, too!

Tips For Cleansing Acne Prone Skin

Tips For Cleansing Acne Prone Skin

Tips For Cleansing
Acne Prone Skin

1. Wash Daily. Wash your face twice a day, but avoid soaps. Soaps can eradicate your skin’s protective barrier. Many of them have a pH higher than your skin, which can negatively alter your skin chemistry. Chemicals in some soaps can be very harsh and irritate your face. Instead, it’s best to use a gentle facial wash to clean your skin.

2. Do Not Scrub. Scrubbing is bad for acne-prone skin as it can cause existing ruptures to get even more inflamed. Avoid gritty exfoliant facial washes as well as cleansing tools like scratchy loofahs or scrubbers. Instead, massage in your gentle facial cleanser with your fingertips using lukewarm water. When you’re finished, rinse, then pat — don’t rub — your skin dry.

3. Try a Cleanser Containing Salicylic Acid. Salicylic acid, which is derived from plants, is one of the most effective anti-acne chemicals on the market. It works by entering follicles where it encourages the shedding of dead — and potentially pore-clogging — skin cells. It also helps shrink blackheads and whiteheads.

4. Consider a Cleanser with Benzoyl Peroxide. Just like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide works by breaking up dead skin cells that can clog pores. It has the added benefit of killing the bacteria that help contribute to acne. Benzoyl peroxide is the active ingredient in acne-fighting preparations, but it can take a while to be effective, so give it a good four to six weeks to kick in.

5. Don’t Dry Out Your Skin. Many acne preparations have a significant drying effect on the skin. This might seem like a good thing, but overdrying can make things matter worse — oil production might go into overdrive. To avoid this, keep skin moisturized. It’s important to use products that are oil-free or marked “nonacnegenic” or “noncomedogenic,” meaning they won’t wedge roadblocks of gunk in your pores. If you’re treating a breakout with topical acne medication, be sure to apply the moisturizer after the medicine.
